Pico was selected to provide a total solution for the stunning Laos Pavilion. Focusing on the connections between traditional and modern society, the pavilion centred on a model of the famous ancient city of Luang Prabang. Other parts of the pavilion highlighted the importance of environmental protection to economic prosperity, and brought Laotian culture to life through lamps, lanterns, textiles, handicrafts and traditional dances, reflecting the customs of Laos that survive to this day.
